Lady Gaga's Album of the Decade?

Lady Gaga has made a claim that is sure to leave tongues wagging. Born This Way, her forthcoming album is set to be the biggest album of the decade. At least that is what she would have us believe.

Gaga told the crowd at a Polish show seen above that the album would be “so much deeper than a wig or lipstick or an outfit, or a f—ing meat dress,” and that it will be “about what keeps us up at night and what makes us afraid.” [source]

Hmm...While Gaga has made a huge impact on music in a short amount of time, this is quite a statement to make. As I have said before, Gaga isn't exactly the most original act that we have. However, she is genius at drawing from the past and making it so above and beyond that we forget that we have seen it before. [See Beyoncé's career also] Gaga has single handedly revived the genre of pop music, aligned the fashion and music industries, and saved the music video. With that being said, many still see her as a flash in the pan. A fluke. If Born This Way is anything close to what Gaga claims, she will have her critics eating humble pie.
